At 16:55 the German students arrived at Bilbaos airport. All of us were very excited to meet our partners. After seeing the host family we went to the houses of our Families. At 7 oclock we met in Las Arenas and went to a restaurant which is called WOK. Then, we walked on the Las Arenas beach.
On Sunday every German spent time with his or her own host family. Some students went sailing or to see some parts of Getxo like the old port and the new one or the beach of Ereaga.

After that, we took some pictures of the old and new tree. Then, we went to the Peace Museum. All of us visited the museum with a guide.
